    Washington Week [#5703] *President Trump's legal team is trying to blunt the impact of ongoing investigations in Russia's meddling in the presidential election and potential collusion with the Trump campaign. In an attempt to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, aides are looking into the background of investigators, according to The New York Times. Plus, aides are researching the president's ability to grant pardons to his aides, family members and himself, according to The Washington Post.
    *As Mr. Trump marks his six-month anniversary in the Oval Office, he is also sharing frustration about the stalled efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
    *After the latest Senate health care bill to replace the ACA collapsed amid party divisions, Mr. Trump shifted blame between Democrats and his own party for the failure. He said senators should stay in town until they pass a plan that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to vote next week on a revised plan that would open the bill for debate and amendments.
    *Robert Costa will discuss six months of achievements and setbacks for the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress with:

    Ready Jet Go! [#117H] Asteroids, Meteors, and Meteorites/Mindy's Meteorite Stand * Asteroids, Meteors, and Meteorites - Sean is determined to beat his mystery competitor at a video game of "Astro-Tracker." When Face 9000 tells the kids about the Asteroid Belt, Sean realizes that the best way to learn about asteroids is to see them for himself. Celery flies them out to space, and the kids learn the difference between an asteroid, a meteor, and a meteorite. Worried at first, Sean learns that only the rare asteroid (called a meteorite) makes it all the way to Earth, so he decides that he'll become really good at "Astro-Tracker" to prepare for the future when he can be on a team of scientists who track rogue asteroids. Curriculum: Asteroids are small solar system bodies that orbit the Sun. Asteroids are similar to comets but do not have a visible coma (fuzzy outline and tail) like comets do. A meteor is a small asteroid that burns up as it passes through the Earth's atmosphere. A meteorite is a piece of asteroid that survives falling through the Earth's atmosphere and collides with the Earth's surface.
    * Mindy's Meteorite Stand - When Mindy and Sunspot are digging in the yard, they discover a unique rock that Mindy is convinced is a meteorite. The kids conduct a series of tests to find out and amazingly the rock passes each test. "Meteorite fever" grips the neighborhood, as Mindy sets up a stand so people can see her meteorite, and bring her rocks to assess. In the end, a DSA scientist confirms that Mindy's rock actually isn't a meteor... but, wait, the random rock Mindy's sitting on is! Curriculum: Meteorites are pieces of space rocks (asteroids) that break up when they hit the Earth's atmosphere and fall in small pieces. Meteorites are older than any rock from Earth, and share certain characteristics: density (high), attraction to a magnet, and rust.

    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#807H] New Jersey Bail Reform When a person is arrested, the idea behind bail is simple: someone who posts cash to get out of jail before trial is more likely to return to court, because otherwise, the money will be revoked.

In New Jersey, after the discovery that almost 40 percent of its jail inmates were locked up because they couldn't pay bail, the state instituted some of the most sweeping bail reforms in the nation. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson reports the story as part of our "Chasing the Dream" series on poverty and opportunity in America. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

Meanwhile, Eastwood continues to explore and to take risks - always seeking to redefine his image as the loner who cares - even when the chips are down.
